2012 was an unforgettable year for me and December’s “Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands” event was definitely a highlight. If you weren’t able to join us, we’ve got you covered. Our girls over at Mane Moves have produced an awesome video that truly captures the evening’s essence. Although I’d been living and breathing this event for the past few weeks, seeing this video was like TRULY being in the room for the first time. I definitely shed a few tears of pride and joy while viewing (yes, I’m a softie at times). There were so many brilliant and inspiring women in the room and so many jewels shared. Check out the recap video and be INSPIRED. 2013 is yours for the taking!
I’m elated to know that a week later, “The Beauties & Brains Brains Behind the Brands” event is still on the minds of our guests. Today, E. Isis Adewale, event producer and founding member of Petals-n-Belles, talks about what she knows for sure, in response to one of the questions I asked the panelists. Find out what this talented woman knows with confidence and be inspired!
Pardon my tardiness, beauties. With everything going on, I forgot to share some pretty exciting news! Last week, In Her Shoes was featured on EBONY.com’s Style page. The lovely Melanie Yvette Martin chatted with me just days before the big event to talk about the inspiration behind my blog and why I felt it was important to bring together this powerful panel of beautypreneurs. I truly enjoyed the interview and hope you do too! Click here to check out the full story on EBONY.com
What do you get when you put together a panel with six of the hottest beautypreneurs in the industry? Jewels. Yes, jewels! Supreme words of wisdom to fuel your success. On Wednesday evening, Renae Bluitt, creator of In Her Shoes hosted a panel with six of the top women in the beauty industry sharing their tips on defying the odds and coming out on top. The discussion was honest, laced with lots of wisdom, humorous at times, and nothing short of amazing. Over 150 beauty, fashion, and lifestyle mavens mixed and mingled, networked, and enjoyed the conversation while indulging in wine and sweet bites from Evelyn’s Kitchen and Signature 7 Dessert Studios. Check out pics from the evening and stay tuned for the official Mane Moves event video coming soon!
As mentioned last week, many of our fellow New Yorkers are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy so we had to reschedule our upcoming event. Hope you can join us on December 5th at the same time, same location, and with the same AWESOME guest speakers!
As we all know, Hurricane Sandy is behind us but the widespread damage in the Tri-State area is not. With so many people still trying to return to a state of normalcy, I’ve decided to push back the event date for “Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands.” Thanks so much for your understanding and patience. If you’ve already purchased tickets, don’t fret! Your name will still be on our list for the new date.
Do you have a sick shoe game and plenty of pairs to spare? Let’s join forces to help those in need! We’ll be collecting new and gently used shoes for Hurricane Sandy victims at “The Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands.” Start digging through those closets and stay tuned for the new date announcement!
